It's probably coming from the local host, but if you're doing remote
syslogging and the host you're on is the loghost, then it might be
coming from elsewhere. If so, the hostname should be logged with the
error - look in /var/adm/messages or /var/log/syslog.
Anyway, once you've figured out which host it is, the actual problem
is that you're running rpc.lockd without rpc.statd. You must either
run both of these daemons, or neither. They're used for NFS, so if
you're not doing NFS you might as well run neither. If you are doing
NFS, you need both. If the rpc.statd died, restart it. Also, check
your inetd.conf to see if you commented out statd but not lockd.
